I Ruin Every Song I Like

Above is the song I have been tripping on for the last two days. In this time, I have heard it on loop a zillion times. Heard every other variation of the song on YouTube – a cappella, acoustic, parody… you name it! I was up till 2 a.m. last night listening to it.

Crazy, I know.

Do you do this too? If I like a song, I listen to it over and over again till I get the lyrics, every pause and every background tone!

My brother hates it. He believes that I ruin the song by playing it so many times. Many others have told me the same.

Is my method normal? Why is it a bad idea to listen to your favourite songs in moderation?


  1. i listen to my favourite songs on repeat for as long as i can stand them. they then serve as anchors for memories of anything that happened during that phase of my life.

    the most i’ve ever played a song on repeat is over 200 times in a week. it was the only song my ipod played that week 🙂
